The first part is correct, but it's not tunnel vision, it's indecision. His first 2 years he was making lousy decisions, but coming up big in the clutch, and when he improvised. People around here really just like to hear themselves talk as you can see. His first two years were very promising. Shotty taught him to ignore his instincts, and second guess himself. The same way he calls a game. Now he's making the right reads, but always hesitates, at best. Most of the time he actually double or triple clutches. By the time he throws the ball it's too late. He also seems to be terrible at reading the line adjustments. I don't have enough information as to why that is, but it's not good. Anyway there's no comparison between his first two years and his last two, except for the numbers. Bring up Aaron Rodgers who was terrible at first, as was Eli. They stuck with them, without trying to coach the playmaker out of them, and you see what you get. Sanchez was similar to them. Playing with confidence, but raw, and reckless, and now he's a basket case out there afraid to make a mistake. Only someone ignorant of how the game is played would say he was terrible, and didn't have "it", and never will. He used to have "it", but not the experience. Now he has the experience, but Shotty coached the "it" factor right out of him. He's more Carr than Harrington. Doubtful he'll ever get "it" back, but if he does, it will be a year or two, and in a different location I'm afraid.
